2015/2016 Unilag Postgraduate Hostel Allocation, How To Get a Bed Space

Unilag postgraduate school has sent out text messages to all newly admitted students informing them of hostel balloting that will be taking place tomorrow starting from 8am, 14th of March 2016. How many of you got the text message?…

The balloting will be an online thing as usual and the venue is Your own student portal.  All you need to do to get a space is for you to log on to the students portal at that time given(8am) and you will see the link to apply for hostel or get a bed space there. The link might not appear until after 8am but I will advise you to log on earlier since it is strictly  based on first come first serve.

If you don’t know how to log on to the students portal, then follow the guide below;

By now I think you all should already know how to access your own personalize account on the school website. You know how you printed your admission letter and payment advice nah, it’s the same.

Here is a better breakdown of the process;

1. Login to the student portal by clicking Current Students or alternatively go Unilag Spgs website(Spgs.unilag.edu.ng) and locate the current student link and then enter your details( Application number/matric number and surname in lowercase as password).

 2. After login in successfully, you will see the hostel application/get a space link there. Click on it and proceed with your application. You will be instructed on what to do after successful application.


If you think the procedures above is too much of a hassle, then approach any cyber cafe inside Unilag for assistance. Very limited spaces available and am not sure it will go round. Try and be right on time. 

Also anything can come up before tomorrow regarding updates/changes on how to ballot for this space. In order not to miss out on anything at all you can click Get Unilag Free Updates to subscribe for free. Thats if you are not yet a subscriber to Unilag Admission Guide.
